Hey there! We’re Alex and Eliza!
Thank you and WELCOME!
We’re so excited you’re here
We are Alex and Eliza 🧡 – the team behind Feather Touch, get to know us more below!.
- We are sisters and best friends! We have a 5-year age gap between us and live together and work together and no! We don’t get sick of each other; we make a great team.
- We have a large menagerie of cats and dogs between us – one of our older gentlemen cats has been with us for 17 years. He’s a Burmese named Fig.
- We both love science fiction + fantasy novels and films 🧝♀️
We also love bringing our clients goals to life via cosmetic tattoo and skin treatments.
We’ve clocked hundreds of hours of ongoing training and have delivered our experience to over 1000 clients in the last three years and we can’t wait to meet you too
We both started on a journey of looking for more from the world we had created for ourselves, while our mother declined into Dementia, this experience was the catalyst that created our bond and our need to do more and be more in this world. We lost our father while we were children and without any grandparents, our bond became unshakable while forged in the fires of caring for our mother.
We chose to allow these experiences to turn into place of growth, and ultimately create the bond we have today, moreover we decided life is too short and precious to wait for it turn out how want, we decided to make it happen. I had been wanting to create a business, so that I could create a business and LIFE I could love, being chronically ill makes it hard to fit into the normal work force, so being my own captain was just a dream at this stage.
It wasn’t until Mum had sadly (but thankfully) left this world, that we headed on a trip overseas together to end the year with adventure and fun. It was on this trip that Eliza found herself in a tattoo studio and decided to get the Brow Artist there to Microblade her brows.
I remember her sending me the photo of her numbing her brows, all covered in plastic and wondering what the heck she was getting herself into. I had only really spent time with more senior women, who had them tattooed back in the hey day, which resulted in blue scary lines. I was kinda freaking out that she was going to regret this.
At the end of that day, we met up before getting back to our hotel at a mini mart – when I saw her, I almost dropped purchases. Her brows were perfect.
We have both struggled with over plucking, long and unruly hairs, that just loved to curl (just google Welsh Man brows) and just hadn’t acquired the skills to be able to do our brow make up in a new way – and for myself chronic illness that has taken away from of my brows, I had never been for a brow shaping or tint, in my life at this stage.
I tried to book myself in immediately with the remaining few days we had left, but the artist wasn’t working until the following week. The heavens must have smiled upon us that day, knowing what would lay ahead, as I firmly believe in the Law of Attraction and had been looking for a new life path for the last 12 months.
Our flights were delayed due to a Volcano, and we were the last Australians out of the country over the coming week. This meant, I was able to book in and have my brows also done. It changed everything about the way I saw myself, immediately feeling less awkward and like I needed to wear make up if anyone was going to see my face. It was the most incredible feeling, feeling empowered about how I looked, I didn’t even realise until this point how much I was affected by my brows.
Fast forward a week and in true Alex style, I wondered how hard it could be? – FYI much harder for so many reasons I didn’t even consider, but I guess that’s the old adage of the more you know, the more you realise you know not much at all.
I ordered some latex skins and a kit online and got practicing and consuming all the content available to me, knowing full well, I had no back ground in beauty and in my personal life knew next to nothing about this kinda thing!
I firmly believe one of my super powers is my thirst for problem solving, I welcome my mistakes and failures as I know from those I will learn the most and running our own business has certainly provided me with many opportunities to do better, and be better as a human. I practiced for hours a day for a whole month, before I approached a training academy.
I poured my heart and soul into my training leading up the one on one with models, I had colleagues make fun of me, people thinking it was another hair brained idea I would forget when the next shiny thing came along. In contrast to that, I had my Husbands unwavering faith in me, and Elizas, and that’s all I needed to know I could make it.
Training week rolls around, and by the end my trainer thought they would have to wheel me out of there – I had poured everything I had into each appointment and was exhilarated, albeit exhausted. It took two months from there to find somewhere I could work from and get all the appropriate council approvals. I’ll be forever grateful to the wonderful Lilly @ Body Stillness for giving me a chance her guidance and love + a space to work from.
I quickly outgrew the space I was in, and one night while looking for a new place to grow into, I talked Eliza into joining me – as who else would you want by your side than someone who chooses you as their best friend, not because we are sisters but because we are soul mates.
We were given these experiences to forge what we have now, everyday we get to choose the love we have for each other, we get to create a legacy that we know Mum and Dad would be so proud for us to have created. Their hard work and sacrifice to provide for us, especially Mum, after becoming a sole parent – we never had the shiney things but she always gave us knowledge and belief that we could be and do anything. The most precious gift to give a child.
We wanted to turn what was left from the estate into something that would provide not only for us in the long term, spiritually emotionally, mentally and financially, but to be able to share our abundance with other women via employment, and to create a lasting impression on the beauty industry via providing the highest of standards for employment, growth and safety while also changing the lives of our amazing clients.
I continued to work 4 days a week in Corporate and Government roles for the first two years the business was created, working at FTA in the evenings and weekends and fitting in working on the business at any moment I could, using my annual leave to train further with any opportunity we received. Since then, we are both full time and cannot imagine a life before now.
It was a whisper in my intuition to create this business, we all have a special gift we can bring to this world, even if you just take the time to bring a smile to someone’s day. I’ve since learnt to listen to my intuition more deeply and it has served me well.
If you’ve read this far, take this as a reminder that the Universe has your back, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now, the path you are on, if you allow it, is opening doors for your future beyond your wildest imagination.
Remember – you are a special gift to this world – a one time event.

Self love and self care know, no bounds and can mean totally different things for you.
Life is too short and only getting shorter to be to worrying about this stuff – so let us take that worry from you and give you the confidence you deserve. We only know all too well how life changing this is.
